|Evil Knievel Attempts a Stunt
On September 8, 1974, Evel Knievel attempted to jump a rocket-powered motorcycle across the 1-mile-wide Snake River Canyon at Twin Falls, Idaho. The attempt failed, however, as his drogue parachute deployed after he cleared the launch ramp and he and his motorcylce ended up floating down to the river's edge below.
